East Virginia John Henry by Archie Edwards

East Virginia John Henry - Archie Edwards; Vestapol tuning, with a slide.

SOLO

John Henry walked into the Big Bend tunnel
Captain was by his side
The rock was so tall, John Henry so small
Lord, he laid down his hammer and he cried
Lord, he laid down his hammer and he cried

When I was in Roanoke city
Comin' down Fifth Avenue
Met a little girl, she's all dressed in red
I said, "Honey, I'm crazy 'bout you, Lord,
Honey, I'm crazy 'bout you."

Ain't gonna tell you no story
I ain't gonna tell you no lie
If I don't get that little girl I love
Gonna take morphine until I die, Lord, I'm gonna
Take morphine until I die

GUITAR REPEATS LAST LINE AND SOLOS

John Henry had a little woman
The dress she wore was red
She went down the track one day, she never came back
She said, "I'm goin' where my husband fell dead,
Lord, I'm goin' where my husband fell dead."
